That's wierd, when I come in via this link:

http://www.archive.org/browse.php?collection=etree&field=%2Fmetadata%2Fcreator

to here


http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3Aetree%20AND%20creator%3A%22Umphrey%27s%20McGee%22

then here

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3Aetree%20AND%20creator%3A%22Umphrey%27s%20McGee%22&sort=-publicdate

It does not work, but when I hit the links posted in your response it sorts correctly....odd huh ???

Very strange. I'll see what I can find out.

I think it's an apostrophe problem combined with slightly different link types. chops11 is using "collection=UmphreysMcGee"; you're using "creator=Umphrey's McGee" or "creator=Umphrey%27s%20McGee" when you sub out the oddball characters.

We had a similar problem a while back with other apostrophized bands, wonder if it's resurfaced, or if you've just found a part that wasn't fixed?
